Carbonated drinks + children = very bad

Asian family drinking orange juice. Happy Asian grandparent and

On a hot summer day, you can feel a cool feeling of falling into the heart of a cold cola, but for children and teenagers, they always drink too much-carbonated drinks without paying attention. According to the American Dietetic Association, each person should drink up to 3 cans of carbonated beverages per week. However, Americans probably drink an average of 1 can of carbonated drinks a day – many people even have to go too far, which puts them in serious health problems.

Worldwide, carbonated beverages may have become one of the main culprits of childhood obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. The children don't know that 1 can of carbonated drink contains 9 spoons of sugar and 140 calories. These empty calories can quench your thirst but not satiety. Worse, the sugar is usually derived from fructose-rich corn syrup, an unhealthy sugar and an unnatural byproduct of corn.
For example, if a child drinks 1 canto 2 cans of carbonated beverage a day, these extra 140 to 280 calories will become 1 pound of fat that can never be lost in a month. Within a year, the child weighs 12 pounds and is fat. After entering puberty, your child is likely to be overweight and may become a marginal patient with diabetes and high cholesterol. The good news is that as long as you reduce your intake of carbonated drinks, you can lose weight no matter how old you are. In one study, children who switched carbonated beverages to 0 calorie drinks lost 1 pound per month. However, a 0-calorie drink is also harmful to bone health and can also cause heart disease. How should we be good? First of all, don't be fooled by the “Jianyi” drink. Studies have shown that most people who change their diet drink don't lose weight because they don't reduce their food intake because they drink a diet drink. In addition, the acidic chemicals contained in carbonated beverages will definitely destroy the enamel. One hundred per cent juice is healthier than carbonated drinks, but they still contain a lot of sugar and are not as nutritious as fruit. Non-100% juices, diet drinks and sports drinks are also ranked very low in terms of nutrition. The easiest way to do this is: On a hot summer day, nothing beats a cup of iced water, lemonade or caffeine-free iced tea!

Carbonated drinks really have no nutritional value, and we should start at home and limit carbonated drinks. If the parents are drinking soda all day long, the children will, of course, follow suit. Parents should keep their children away from carbonated drinks or not buy them at all. This may sound cruel, but in the long run, it is good for family health.
